04/23/13 The Mayor’s Youth Council will be leading a Founders Day / Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday April 27, 2013 at 10:00 AM. The event will be held at Founders Park and will commemorate Plymouth’s 140th Anniversary and, hopefully, it can be an annual event leading up to our Sesquicentennial year in 2023. Plymouth became a City on April 25, 1883.
The council will also be planting a Syacamore Tree in Founders Park donated by NISPSCO. Founders Park is on Polk Street north of East Jefferson behind Mila’s and The Coffee Lodge. New street signs marking all three of Plymouth’s founders (James Blair, John Sering and William Polk) will be reposted as well.
The Youth Council will be reciting short bios of the three founders and a history of Plymouth.
The Youth Council is excited about their project and look forward to a great response from our community!
